With the shooting of an unarmed teenager in Missouri weighing on their minds, politicians, church leaders and members of the public gathered Tuesday night at a Northwest Baltimore Church to consider police brutality. The Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant, pastor of the Empowerment Temple, where the event was held, said that the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. could be a landmark in the history of African-American activism. In the future, Bryant said, people will ask one another, "Where were you and what did you do when Michael Brown was killed?"

A few weeks back, I wrote about the Abell Foundation funding a survey of Baltimore's tech community, which was being pushed by a new group called the Innovation Alliance . About 170 people responded to the IA's survey . Apparently, we'll get the results soon. And then, the next step is a big town hall meeting. It will be held March 12th, 5:30-7:30pm at the Mount Washington Conference Center . So who is the Innovation Alliance? Says Larrabee: Newt Fowler and Jason Pappas formed the Innovation Alliance to study the needs of Baltimore's innovation community with support from the Abell Foundation, and hopefully the Innovation Alliance will facilitate the creation of a hub facility for the innovation community.

For Raymond Kelly, fixing the issue of crime in his Sandtown Winchester neighborhood seems simple enough - make sure police and community leaders are visible. "Drug dealers on the corner don't want to be seen," the community organizer said. "We want to be seen. " Kelly and his wife, Melissa, have run "No Boundaries," a seven-neighborhood community improvement coalition, for about six years. On Wednesday night, Kelly petitioned Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts to join them at their monthly meeting and discuss how police could help their cause.

Two town hall meetings presenting the implementation of new curfew hours for Baltimore children left many attendees with serious unanswered questions ( "Residents see some gray areas in city's new curfew," July 21). While the mayor's presenting panel gave passionate testimony as to why the curfew is being enacted, the people of Baltimore were not allowed the time nor given the respect we were expecting. One member of the audience did ask for more time for the community to have input before the curfew start date, but that question was not answered.

Management at the Baltimore jail held "town hall meetings" with Black Guerrilla Family gang members to get tips on how to better operate the institution, a former corrections officer told the FBI as part of a wide-ranging corruption investigation. The allegation, contained in recently filed court documents, is the latest portrayal of the gang's extensive influence at the jail before federal authorities stepped in last year.

I was glad to read that three people were rescued unharmed from flash floods in the Baltimore area ( "Several are rescued after downpours cause flooding," April 15). Unfortunately, these types of extreme weather events are becoming more common, and we are discovering that many people and communities are unprepared to cope with the effects of heavy rains or extreme temperatures. As your article notes, the Baltimore City Department of Public Works has put in place some temporary fixes to address flooding in low-lying areas, and it is working on finding permanent solutions.
